Dubuque Wahlert standout Eric May has signed a national letter intent with Iowa. The 6-4 guard averaged just over 18 points and six rebounds per game a year ago in leading the Golden Eagles to the class 3A state title. Iowa coach Todd Lickliter says it’s a pleasure to talk about May as he fully understands the tradition of Iowa basketball and embraces the opportunity to recapture that tradition.
The Hawkeyes are also expected to sign 6-9 center Brennan Cougill out of Sioux City Heelan and Lickliter’s first two recruiting classes have been top heavy with midwestern talent. Lickliter says there’s no need to broaden the recruiting base when they can find what they need at home.
Iowa state signed junior college forward Marquis Gilstrap out of Georgia. New Drake coach Mark Phelps has several committments, including Urbandale forward Reece Uhlenhopp and Seth Van Deest from Bettendorf and among those expected to sign with UNI is Solon guard Matt Morrison.
